Absolutely Worth It - Boston, MA

I had hereditary drooping eyelids. On both eyes my peripheral vision was impacted so much that I "failed" the test and insurance covered the cost. (although I would have paid anyway). Had minimal bruising (a small red/purple spot no larger than a pencil eraser under one eye). I wore glasses and pretty much nobody noticed the stitches etc. Came out on their own after about 2 weeks. I know have a tiny white line. Not noticeable unless you look for it.

Very good, personable, came trusted after a family member had used her. The procedures on both eyes took maybe 1/2 hour. Most painful part was the numbing agent (lidocaine?). It was stressful though because they put this black plastic thing on your eyeballs (to stop you from seeing the scalpel I suppose) and when they are stitching you can feel tugging (although no pain). Highly recommend a valium beforehand. Only thing I didn't love was a 2+ hour wait on the follow up appointment because they forgot about me sitting in an exam room...
